The smoky brown cockroach is mainly found outdoors around wooded areas. This species is sensitive to environmental changes and prefers to stay in high-humidity areas. As a result, they are a problem for residential properties in warmer climates.
Apart from their natural habitats, these cockroaches are found in garbage and sewers, making them potential disease carriers. Therefore, these unpleasant pests, if found around your home, must not be taken lightly.
